Among Sly Stallone aficionados, it’s a well-known fact (a “cheese truth“, if you will) that Stallone’s screen debut didn’t come on Rocky (hee hee!) but on the 1970 adult film The Party at Kitty and Stud’s, in which he earned $200 for playing the part of Stud. (Playing the part of kitty: Henrietta Holm’s luxuriant 70s muff). Porn director Gail Palmer later re-edited the film and renamed it Italian Stallion to capitalize on the success of Rocky, and the horse wop fever that was sweeping the country. The film contained no hardcore (i.e. penetration) scenes, and at the time Palmer claimed Stallone had performed them, but that they’d been edited out. In 2007, a new version was released on DVD claiming to show the original hardcore scenes, but according to AVN (nsfw), those were inserts taken from another movie and there was no proof that Stallone had ever filmed hardcore scenes.
Well when I first heard about Stallone getting his start in a adult film (from my unofficial guru of all things Stallone) I did not believe it, and since it really didn't hold my interest by the time I got home and to my computer I forgot to google it, in fact I forgot about it all completely, until I ran across this tonight. So I guess I was wrong to not believe, and am just glad I didn't make a bet about it lol.
